In addition to the Photoshop CC and Camera RAW announcements, the Adobe XD team also debuted something entirely different at the MAX conference: the company’s first shot at hardware. Coming in the form of a pressure-sensitive stylus and digital ruler, the two accessories are meant to take the creative brainstorming experience and shift it from pen-and-paper to pen-and-tablet.
In the video preview above, Adobe’s VP of Product Experience, Michael Gough, introduces the two products — code named “Mighty” and “Napoleon” — and walks you though the experience of using them.
The pen, or “Project Mighty,” was put together in collaboration with design firm Ammunition and engineering firm MindTribe. Working in concert with an iOS app, the Mighty pen allows you to do away with the sketchbook in favor of a more digital experience. Ergonomically designed and pressure sensitive, Adobe thinks this will be the best way for designers to get initial ideas down on ‘paper.’
